    Five scraps of the Malaysian Airlines' jet have now been discovered around the Indian Ocean

    (KUALA LUMPUR) — Malaysia’s government said Thursday that two more pieces of debris, discovered in South Africa and Rodrigues Island off Mauritius, were “almost certainly” from Flight 370, bringing the total number of pieces believed to have come from the missing Malaysian jet to five

    Three new pieces of debris have been found in Mauritius and in Mozambique that could be linked to missing [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Australia’s transport minister has said.

    The fate of the passenger jet, which is presumed to have crashed at sea after disappearing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board in March 2014, remains a mystery.
    Five other fragments have previously been found and identified as [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    All of them were discovered thousands of kilometres from the current search zone far off Australia’s west coast.

    An apparent plane part that washed up on a South Australian beach has been sent to check if it has links to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
    The debris, found by a man searching for driftwood on Kangaroo Island at 2.40pm today, appears to be from a plane and has "no step" printed on it.
    Fairfax Media reports that it is understood the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has seen a photo of the debris and believes it could be from a plane.

    The Malaysian government has approved a new attempt to find the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in the Indian Ocean.
    A US-based company early this week dispatched a search vessel to look for debris in the southern Indian Ocean, three-and-a-half years after the Boeing 777 disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers, including six Australians, and 12 crew.
    Malaysia, China and Australia called off the 1,046-day official search last year without solving the mystery.

    Ocean Infinity said in a statement that the search vessel Seabed Constructor, which left the South African port of Durban on Tuesday, was taking advantage of favourable weather to move toward "the vicinity of the possible search zone."
    In the initial search for the plane, a 52-day surface search covered an area of several million square kilometres (square miles) in the Indian Ocean west of Australia, before an underwater search mapped 710,000 square kilometres (274,000 square miles) of seabed at depths of up to 6,000 meters (20,000 feet). They were the largest aviation searches of their kind in history, according to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau

    The Australian Transport Safety Bureau today released its final report into the underwater search conducted from the time the plane disappeared until its suspension in January.
    The report offers detail into the search but sheds little fresh evidence about the plane’s location.
    “It remains a great tragedy and we wish that we could have brought complete closure to the bereaved,” ATSB chief commissioner Greg Hood said.
    “I hope, however, that they can take some solace in the fact that we did all we could do to find answers.”



    According to Courthart, the significance of the report lies in its use of language that “suggests the possibility of a sinister hand in the cockpit".
    It confirms for the first time information 60 Minutes received from a leaked Malaysian police report.
    “When I was in Malaysia, one of the crucial pieces of evidence that we stumbled across was a leaked Malaysian police report - which has never been officially acknowledged before - which mentioned the first officers’ mobile cell phone attempted to register with a cell tower,” he said.
    “It is suggestive of a scenario that one of the people in charge of the cockpit was perhaps attempting to communicate with the ground.”

    Malaysia will pay US company Ocean Infinity up to $70 million if it can find the wreckage, or the black boxes, of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 within three months.
    The Boeing 777-200ER jet disappeared on March 8, 2014 and has become one of aviation’s biggest mysteries.

    Meanwhile, plans for a memorial site in Perth for the victims of flight MH370 is losing support among relatives of the passengers and crew.
    Over Christmas, the West Australian government released a $125,000 tender for a memorial on Perth’s upmarket Elizabeth Quay development.


    It is intended that the memorial be a fitting monument to the passengers and crew of the missing flight,” the tender stated.
    But relatives of the victims -70 percent of whom are Chinese nationals – are appealing to the WA government and the Federal Government to shelve it.
    They claim the proposal has come to soon and has not involved their consultation.


    Sheryl Keen, president of Aircrash Support Group Australia, an organisation that supports air crash victims and their families, sent a letter to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull outlining objections to the planned Perth memorial.
    “Many of the next of kin are very unhappy about this decision, finding it nothing but adding further insult to injury, insensitive and disrespectful,” she wrote.

    The wreck of missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 — if it is found — could be preserved "like a time capsule" because of the depth, stillness and temperature of waters in the southern Indian Ocean.
    The man who co-led the search for Air France 447 — which crashed in the Atlantic Ocean in 2009 — says if MH370 is at or near the bottom of the sea, the wreckage and indeed bodies could be largely preserved, and still give investigators vital clues as to why the plane disappeared so far off course.
    "It can be a very quiet place with very little oxygen," US oceanographer David Gallo said.
    "At the surface it's not the same thing, so the deep ocean can be like a time capsule that preserves everything."

    Wild conspiracy theories about Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 have now spread to the search ship tasked with finding it.
    Key points:

    • Ocean Infinity signed a deal with the Malaysian Government to search 25,000 square kilometres over 90 days
    • Seabed Constructor went dark on tracking websites
    • Some suggest search ship retrieved chest from sea floor



    For nearly a week some aviation buffs and MH370 followers have been debating online whether the missing plane has in fact been secretly found and — if not — why the ship's Automatic Identification System (AIS) was abruptly turned off for several days, preventing online observers from tracking its movements.
    The ship, Seabed Constructor, suddenly went "dark" on tracking websites not long after it had completed a curious circle, several kilometres wide, prompting many on Twitter to question what was inside the circle on the sea floor.
    The ship then headed south-west in a straight line, and a few kilometres later turned its AIS off.
    "I'm sticking with my theory that the big circle is a piece of debris, and the line south was to locate the plane. When they think they found it they turned off AIS as protocol," one tweet said.
    "This. Is. Strange. I have never seen a ship do this. Maybe there's an AUV lost down there?!?" said another.

    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 crash was deliberate, aviation experts suggest

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    An investigation by an Australian TV news program suggests the pilot of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared with 239 people aboard more than four years ago, deliberately crashed into the Indian Ocean.
    Investigators are still searching for the aircraft, but these findings raise the possibility that one of the greatest aviation mysteries in modern history may not have been a catastrophic accident, but instead a possible mass murder-suicide.
    "60 Minutes Australia" brought together an international group of aviation experts who say that the disappearance of MH370 was a criminal act by veteran pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah.
    "He was killing himself; unfortunately, he was killing everybody else on board, and he did it deliberately," said Canadian Air crash investigator Larry Vance.

    Boeing 777 pilot and instructor Simon Hardy reconstructed the flight plan based on military radar, and says Captain Shah flew along the border of Malaysia and Thailand, crossing in and out of each country's airspace to avoid detection.
    "It did the job," Hardy said, "because we know, as a fact, that the military did not come and intercept the aircraft."
    Hardy also made a strange discovery: Captain Shah likely dipped the plane's wing over Penang, his hometown.
    "Somebody was looking out the window," he suggested.
    "Why did he want to look outside Penang?" asked reporter Tara Brown.
    "It might be a long, emotional goodbye -- or a short, emotional goodbye," Hardy replied.
    Two experts from the "60 Minutes Australia" investigation also disagreed with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau's scenario of the "death dive" with no one in control.
    "I think someone was controlling the aircraft until the end," said Hardy.
    They argue instead that Captain Shah flew Flight MH370 another 115 miles than originally thought. "This was a mission by one of the crew to hide the aircraft as far away from civilization as possible," Hardy said. "Which puts us way outside the search area that is currently being done."

    The wreckage uncovered so far may be further evidence that the pilot actually had control and that it was not a high speed crash. As Larry Vance noted of one wing component recovered from the shore of Africa, "The front of it would be pressed in and hollow. The water would invade inside and it would just explode from the inside. So this piece would not even exist."

    "They are very compelling," aviation analyst Henry Harteveldt, president of Atmosphere Research Group, told CBS News' Kris Van Cleave. "What I find very compelling is the hypothesis that the pilot did this deliberately, and did one of the most heinous acts in modern commercial aviation."
    CBS News spoke to multiple family members of the MH370 victims, and some say that this is nothing new and that without forensic evidence, they will not be convinced.
    Captain Shah's family tells CBS News that "pointing a finger toward him does not make them expert investigators – they have to find the plane."
    Malaysia Airlines has not yet responded to our requests for comment.

    I am having a hard time figuring out how put together this jet is after a crash. the pressure of the water hitting the jet must have been very forceful. I do think the pilot did it. Didnt he simulate the same pattern at his personal computer at home?

    Malaysia's new Transport Minister has said the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 by a private US firm will end next Tuesday and there will be no more extensions.

    Aviation experts examining the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 believe the pilot may have crashed the plane on purpose after deliberately avoiding detection on radar.
    According to a panel assembled for Australian TV programme , the 239 passengers of MH370, which disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in 2014, were the victims of a “criminal” act of murder-suicide carried out by the plane’s captain, Zaharie Ahmad Shah.
    The experts, who include former Australia Transport Safety Bureau boss Martin Dolan, say that evidence indicates Shah executed a series of manoeuvres to evade radar detection and ensure the plane disappeared in a remote location, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] reports.
    They all agreed the likelihood of the disappearance being an accident was “one in a trillion”, accusing Shah of “deliberately” downing the plane.
    According to Simon Hardy, a senior Boeing 777 pilot and instructor, Shah avoided detection by Malaysian and Thai military radar by flying along the border, crossing in and out of each country’s airspace. It was while on the border that the plane’s transponder suddenly turned off, something that could be done manually by the pilot.
    “As the aircraft went across Thailand and Malaysia, it runs down the border, which is wiggling underneath, meaning it’s going in and out of those two countries, which is where their jurisdictions are,” Hardy told the programme.
    “So both of the controllers aren’t bothered about this mysterious aircraft. Because it’s, ‘Oh, it’s gone. It’s not in our space any more.’”
    Hardy believes that Shah took an unusual flight path in order to pass directly over his hometown of Penang, Malaysia, for an “emotional goodbye”, before ditching it in the Southern Indian Ocean “where it could never be found”.

    I watched the 60 minutes episode and it all made sense that the pilot ditched the plane on purpose,one expert said that he could have controlled and glided the plane for many miles after it run out of fuel,he could have even managed to somewhat land the plane on the ocean far away from the search grid.

    You know I've always thought this was the case.
    It's horrible to know one person could destroy so many lives for his own selfish reasons.
    I hope now they may let loose with some info on this monster.
    Won't hold my breath tho. Look how long it's taken them to get to this revelation.

    French police will open an investigation into missing flight MH370 after Malaysia's 400-pagefinal report failed to explain the mystery amid claims of a cover-up.
    The Gendarmerie of Air Transport wants to examine data from satellite operator Inmarsat which tracked the plane before it went missing in March 2014.
    It intends to 'verify the veracity and especially the authenticity of all the technical data transmitted,' according to French newspaper [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    No other countries are probing the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing that had 239 people including four French nationals on board.
